Can someone with a 4DTV connected to a movable c & ku or ku dish confirm something? Is K3 (4DTV name) AMC-3 channel 640 PBS still working?

I want to swing my fixed Primestar there soon for it, if it's still up there.

Thanks in advance :)

It's still working here. You have to be right on target to get it though.

Thank's for the reply. I moved my Primestar dish a week ago to AMC-3 and found it quite easy. All the DVB stuff works well too. :)

Sure Ice :) I had it pointed at G-16 (X4 - 4DTV) for my HITS ku channels. Since the migration to AMC-18/C (W5) It opened up that dish for something else. I decided on AMC-3 vs G-25 since it had stuff in a language I could understand.

What is the smallest dish you can use on T5 for some channels? A friend of mine is suppose to give me a few old direct tv dishes that are either 24 or 27" I wondered if it's any good to see anything on T5 with a regular LNBF.

I've used a smaller Pstar (70e) for T5, I believe it's about 24"x27" or so.
A 76cm Winegard works well also.

cool. I thought you had it at 99 but wasnt sure

If they're 27 they might get the stronger signals. 97 is wacky as some TP's are very hot and some are weak. Nudge the dish a little w and those weak ones are strong but then the original ones are weaker

I have a 30" motorized and most signals are between 50-75 on the Pansat 9200

From what your saying it looks like 99 is playing adjacent sat with 97. When HITS leaves I'll bet that will go away.

I did a quick stop on 97 when I was moving my 90cm. It was booming in on the 90.

I can't wait to see what happens when G10 is replaced. Im hoping 11720 gets a good boost from the new bird.
